Ortega, Gerardo; Özyürek, Asli; Peeters, David – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 2020
When learning a second spoken language, cognates, words overlapping in form and meaning with one's native language, help breaking into the language one wishes to acquire. But what happens when the to-be-acquired second language is a sign language? We tested whether hearing nonsigners rely on their gestural repertoire at first exposure to a sign…

Knight, Janine; Dooly, Melinda; Barberà, Elena – ReCALL, 2020
Research into the multimodal aspects of language is increasingly important as communication through a screen plays a greater role in modern society than ever before (Liou, 2011). Multimodality has been explored from a number of angles relating to computer-mediated communication (CMC), such as its affordances and impact on language learners,…

Ferretti, Federica – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2020
The learning of algebra represents a difficulty within the mathematics learning process. Precisely because of their epistemological and ontological nature, semiotics provides a good key to understanding the main difficulties that hinder the learning of algebraic objects. The answers to a large scale assessments task that requires a treatment in…

Tytler, Russell; Prain, Vaughan; Aranda, George; Ferguson, Joseph; Gorur, Radhika – Journal of Research in Science Teaching, 2020
Despite mixed results in research on student learning from drawing in science, there is growing interest in the potential for this visual mode, in tandem with other modes, to enact and enable student reasoning in this subject. Building on current research in this field, and using a micro-ethnographic approach informed by socio-semiotic…

Kouki, Rahim; Griffiths, Barry J. – International Electronic Journal of Mathematics Education, 2020
In this article we present the results of a qualitative investigation into the teaching and learning of Taylor series and local approximations. In order to perform a comparative analysis, two investigations are conducted: the first is historical and epistemological, concerned with the pedagogical evolution of semantics, syntax and semiotics; the…

Beltrán-Pellicer, Pablo; Godino, Juan D. – Cambridge Journal of Education, 2020
A subject of growing interest in mathematics education is the affective domain and its effects on the teaching and learning processes, giving rise to different models of its components and conditioning factors. In this paper, we apply the ontological and semiotic categories from the Onto-Semiotic Approach (OSA) to research in mathematics…

Santiago de Roock, Roberto – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2020
Analysis of social action has increasingly considered the place of 'things' in recent years, including seeing objects (both physical and digital) as co-participants in social interaction, systems, and the research process. This article argues that video ethnography is well positioned to address such considerations including, with some…

Suryaningrum, Christine Wulandari; Purwanto; Subanji; Susanto, Hery; Ningtyas, Yoga Dwi Windy Kusuma; Irfan, Muhammad – Journal on Mathematics Education, 2020
Semiotics is simply defined as the sign-using to represent a mathematical concept in a problem-solving. Semiotic reasoning of constructing concept is a process of drawing a conclusion based on object, representamen (sign), and interpretant. This paper aims to describe the phases of semiotic reasoning of elementary students in constructing the…

Chappell, Mindy J.; Varelas, Maria – Science Education, 2020
We explored how arts-based practices, specifically what we define as ethnodance informs the study of science identity. We present a theoretical argument supported by an empirical illustration of how ethnodance offers Black youth with dance identities a medium to narrate evolving science identities, communicating meanings, interactions, and…
